We can meet your drilling and completion additive needs with our wide range of biocides, flocculants and deflocculants, clay stabilizers, foamers, lubricants, and other products.

Enhanced Oil Recovery Products

When you partner with Univar, we can help you improve your intake volumes and achieve your oil recovery goals with enhancement products such as flow modification polymers and flow control surfactants.

Stimulation Additives

Univar carries a variety of stimulation additives such as slurry friction reducers, non-emulsifiers, diverting agents, lubricants, and cross linkers. We can also custom-blend these additives to meet the unique needs of your application.

We provide logistics management

We can manage your logistics from start to finish to create cost and operational efficiencies from the warehouse to the well site and everywhere in between. If you require products from a number of vendors, we can consolidate the orders and arrange for pickup at a single destination: our warehouse.

We provide storage

We can also store your proprietary products in our warehouse and provide necessary quantities as needed, resulting in faster delivery and unmatched cost savings. Not only can you trust that your proprietary codes and blends are safe with us, but you can also trust that we will maintain a high level of product support to ensure superior quality.
